[3392-20100925] Cask. Not much aroma, some mild leafiness. Hazy, dark brown body with a medium-lasting bubbly off-white head. Green leafy hops flavour has some lingering sweet tea characteristics. Medium body. Fairly mild.

Why are all C’est What customers such sensitive pussies? ;) Had this there on cask, not a fucking thing going on there that day, and it was a hazy amber with a fine silky white head. Mild sweet fruity aroma, taste lightly bitter, some gross peanut flavors, nutty with a pale malt sweetness. HogTownHarry (7065) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - OCT 21, 2010
2010-09-25 at Cest What 2010 Fall Festival of Beers, day 2. On (hugely abused by cranky Cest What staff) cask. Amber-gold with a frothy off-white head (absolutely crammed full of huge dark floaties - mine was the first pour out of a tortured cask). Subtle aroma, like a fairly classic UK bitter but with more dryness and extra acidic/funky UK hops - underlying it is typical floral/sweet UK yeast. The taste has the same elements, but where the aroma had to be penalized for weakness, the flavour is quite bold - pungent floral hop and yeast tanginess, only a bit of alcohol - pretty solid (7+). Watery body and no carbonation (like I said, mistreated), some astringency, sweet up-front, and an almost grapefruity long, long bitter finish. Must have this again if ever made, as I think it would be spectacular if not assaulted by surly servers first. thb (836) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 1, 2010
Myself and the people I shared this with all got an unmistakable hint of green peas in this that I simply can’t figure out. It was really quite bizarre. Anyway, it detracted from a decent, but average beer. Hops, malt in decent balance. Radek Kliber (7483) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 27, 2010

jercraigs (10867) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 26, 2010
Aroma herbal , fruity with slightly unusual for bitter aroma.
Appearance hazed dark amber look with rocky top.
Flavor and Palate : medium bodied, fairly flat (well its cask). Fruity with leaf like bitterness. Hint of spice on sides. Sticky malty sweetness finishing.
2010-09-25. Hazy dark amber body with a modest beige head that fades. Mild aroma, light fruity malt. 6+ Flavour has a worty character, light bitterness, odd fruity profile. 6+ Average to light body. Just okay, maybe a bit young still? Would try again but did not really impress today. Tap at Cest What, Toronto Sammy (12731) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 26, 2010
Grapefruit colour, lots of bubbles on tap. 45 IBU, and its there. Medium mouthfeel. Tasty stuff though more of a hop story than anything. Average drinkability.
